Prepare for your first visit

What to bring
In order to obtain a rebate from Medicare you will need to have a referral to Prof Rombauts. Your GP may give you a 12 month or an indefinite referral. A referral from another specialist to Luk will last for only 3 months from the date of your first consultation. If you are seeking medical advice as a couple, it is a Medicare requirement that the names and dates of birth of both partners appear on referrals. Please bring the referral to your first appointment.
Registration and medical questionnaire
At the time of booking your first appointment, we will send you an email confirming your appointment details. You will be asked to download the documents below. Please take the time to complete these and email or send them back to us to prepare your medical file prior to your appointment.

Test results and medications
Please bring along any results of blood tests and scans that you have. Also make sure you list all the medications that you are currently taking on the medical questionnaire. This includes regular medication for pain, contraception, asthma, depression and other conditions.
It is useful to keep a menstrual chart making note of when you get your period, how long it lasts, whether you have any bleeding between periods and if and when you have any pain or discomfort. Alternatively, you can use an iPhone or Android app to track your cycle.
What to expect
When you explain the reason for your visit and the symptoms you are experiencing, Luk will gain a better understanding of your concerns. He will then review your medical questionnaire and any results you may have brought with you. He may ask your permission to perform a clinical examination. If you wish, you may bring a support person with you.
The consultation will be concluded with a discussion and what other tests may be required. These further results and possible treatment options will then be discussed at a review appointment.
